Where to celebrate Maine’s National Lobster Roll Day

It doesn’t get more iconic than the Maine lobster roll! And while the rest of the country celebrates the crustacean on June 15th, every year since 2015 Maine’s senators pass a resolution that designates September 25th as National Lobster Day (which seeks to “recognize the economic and cultural importance of this species”).

People from all over the world have traveled to Maine for a bite of the internationally known and locally respected food. There are so many ways these days to enjoy specifically a lobster roll: with brown butter or out of a parmesan taco shell, or you can keep it simple with just a little dollop mayo or drizzle of warm butter on top. Whichever version you choose we think the best side dish is a scenic view (french fries or potato chips also work)! Check out this list of 20 places across the 207 with some amazing lobster rolls.
